Select data to make a graph in Numbers on iPad
In Numbers, graphs are created using data from a table. To create any type of graph, you can select the data first, then create a graph that displays the data. When you change the data in the table, the graph updates automatically.
Select the data before creating your graph
Select the table cells with the data you want to use or to add data from an entire row or column, tap the table, then tap the number or letter for that row or column.
If the data in your table is categorised, you can also select a column to plot the results of summary row calculations.
Note: To chart individual data points in a categorised table, make sure the first cell you select is not in a summary row. If the selection includes a group that’s collapsed, only data from the visible groups is plotted.
Tap at the bottom of the screen, then tap Create New Graph.
Tap 2D, 3D or Interactive.
Swipe to see more style options for each type of graph.
Tap a graph to add it, then drag the graph to where you want it on the sheet.
To change whether rows or columns are plotted as a data series, tap the graph, tap Edit References, tap in the toolbar, then tap an option.
Tap Done in the toolbar.
If you add a 3D graph, you see at its centre. Drag this control to adjust the graph’s orientation.
You can adjust the data reflected in the graph at any time. To learn how, see Modify graph data in Numbers on iPad.
